The 31st European Athletics Indoor Championships were held at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris, France, from 4 to 6 March 2011.

577 athletes representing 46 countries competed at the championships.[1] Twenty-six track and field events were contested, with the events programme divided equally between the genders. Russia topped the medal table, having won the most gold medals (six), as well as having gained the greatest total with fifteen. The host nation France was the next best performing team, with five golds being won by French athletes. Germany had the third highest medal haul, followed by Great Britain.[2]

French triple jumper Teddy Tamgho provided the highlight of the tournament with two world indoor record clearances.[3] His compatriot Renaud Lavillenie also excelled, becoming the third best ever performer indoors in the men's pole vault, while Leslie Djhone and Antoinette Nana Djimou Ida won their events with French record marks.[4][5]

Belarusian Andrei Krauchanka's national record performance won the men's heptathlon and Poland's Anna Rogowska took the women's pole vault with a national record. Portuguese runner Francis Obikwelu also had a national record-breaking win, defeating the host favourite Christophe Lemaitre in the 60 metres. The women's 3000 metres saw Briton Helen Clitheroe win her first major title at the age of 37.[3] Ivan Ukhov of Russia attempted the world record in the high jump, but narrowly missed the clearance.[4] The competition closed with the fifth French record of the championships as the host men's team won the 4×400 metres relay.[6]
